- Wedding: July 2010
Did anyone else not have their mom help them get dressed? I feel horrible cause my mom wasn’t there ! I feel like I took a special moment away from her. She was part of all the planning of my wedding, she went wedding dress shopping with me, did the cake tasting with me, helped me pick out favors…etc…. She got to see part of me getting my hair done and my make up, but then she left the hair place because a very small family emergency happened ( not even an emergency-something was missing from an outfit). My hair appt was running a little late so I had to hurry over to the site to get dressed and start my pre ceremony pictures…but in the midst of all this I should have called my mom to come over. Apparently my parents were at the place that I was getting dressed at but since my hair appt ran late, I missed them by a few minutes. They had to leave to go get ready themselves at the hotel.
Now I wish I had just got ready at the hotel instead because none of this would have happened. Well, as I was getting dressed at the venue site my bridesmaid asked ‘don’t you want your mom to be here?’ And then it slowly it hit me as to what was going on. And I have felt horrible since. When I started planning my wedding, I wanted my mom to be involved with everything including that part of my wedding day….It just didn’t happen that way! And every time I bring this up to my mom to talk about it and apologize she changes subjects but doesn’t seem mad. But she also claims she didn’t know I was getting dressed there…which I just don’t understand how that could have happened. I just feel absolutely horrible. I know I should be thankful that my mom was at my wedding and got to see me get married in the first place. But I just feel so horrible about this and now when I think of weddings, I think of this. I don’t want to regret anything! Society and media puts a lot of emphasis on this ‘special moment’ and I feel like I ruined it!! Plus, we had so many guests, that I didn’t have much time to hang out with my mom on my big day at all! I feel awful! Any thoughts ??? 🙁
